Alter it Monthly Challenge

Hi peeps, busy , busy, busy ? So this month, I am entering the challenge over at Alter it Monthly; the theme is celestial .

I had this box which had a very ugly Santa image ( sorry Santa), and was a unappealing shade of red, but I loved the star shape. So , I have something I want to alter, in a shape of a star.....ummm, that's a good start for this challenge.

Painted the box silver, glittered some areas in white, altered a ornament...

My letters were cheap and ugly, so I painted white, heated till they bubbled, added blue mica, silver glitter..

Glittered stars, snowflakes, ornament...Gold embossed my metal stars...

Painted my ornament with blue mica, added a Prima chipboard...

Wow, that's a lot of altering...And the finished project...

I am also joining The Flying Unicorn, which is to combine 5 of their challenges...

Enjoy the x-mas preps, don't stress...thanks for peeking....xoxoox
